Introducing a son or daughter to the fundamentals of knife safety and education is a tradition for those who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. Award-winning knife and tool designer Glenn Klecker’s son Nathan had the idea for a pre-cut softwood knife kit for young people, so it was named in his honor. The pre-cut, easily assembled kit will open the conversation about responsible knife ownership in a fun way. As you supervise this woodworking project, you can impart the priceless lesson that while it is a useful and valuable tool, a knife also carries with it the duty and obligation to be used and carried safely. The knife can be assembled by press fit, or sanded, glued, sealed or stained to be decorated as your child sees fit. The slightly oversized pieces were designed for small hands, and the pride of making it together will be a lifelong memory for you both. Having the basic build and features of a real knife gives your child an opportunity to develop knife-handling skills. Complete instructions and knife-safety education tips are included.
